This is mostly for Instagram rather than YouTube. I ended up just opening in Quicktime and then exporting to 1080p with H.264. I shot the video originally in vertical format, so didn't have to crop. This reduced the file size from 6 GB to ~250 MB, and the quality still seemed good. Anything wrong with this approach?

Good job. If it looks fine, it is fine. There is no point in sending 6GB files over the interwebs for an Insta post.
If you found a workflow, write it down for future use
